There are the Khans, Kapoors and the Bachchans, who predominantly rule the Indian film industry and have been the fan favourite for decades. Despite the ongoing changes in the industry where content-driven films are preferred more, actors like Irrfan, Divya Dutta, Rajkummar Rao and Neha Dhupia has finally achieved what they deserve. But what about the other talented actors from the industry, who are still considered underrated. They nail their roles and justify their screen presence but somehow still don’t manage to make it to the A-listers of Bollywood. Let’s take a look at the list of some of them:
Circuit! Considered one of his most iconic roles being the Munna Bhai’s sidekick. Arshad has been in the industry for more than two decades now and has appeared in numerous films. He has been part of some of the biggest commercial super hits and a few critically acclaimed films. The Golmaal actor surely is one of the most underrated actors.
Shergill might be a prominent name in Punjab, but the actor has failed to make it big in Bollywood. With some great films like Maachis, Mohabbatein, Yahan, Strangers and Saheb Biwi aur Gangster to his credit, it’s sad to see the his talent is not being utilised to the best of his ability.
Considered as one of the most natural actors in the industry, Raaz has done a variety of roles and has quite some fan following for his performances in films like Run and Delhi Belly. But that’s not the brighter side. Raaz had to struggle a lot in his initial days in the industry and his journey goes way back to the 90s. That being said, who wouldn’t want to see such a fine actor in more films with stronger roles.
Be it Pandit Ji from Fukrey or Sultan from Gangs of Wasseypur, Tripathi has shown why talent can’t be hidden for long. The actor, who started with commercials and smaller roles went on to star in some of the most prominent films of the new era of the industry. But that’s it! While fans would love to watch more of Tripathi in films and television, the actor has not really been fortunate to make it big in the industry and has only been limited to supporting roles.
He has a strong screen presence and a dynamic personality but even with all that traits, luck hasn’t been on his side. Sushant, who is known for raising the bar for his co-stars in the film, is another entrant in this list. He has done some good films in the past but now the actor is limited to some television shows, Crime Patrol being the recent one. Fans always love to see someone with whom they can relate and being an outsider, Sushant is the guy fans wouldn’t mind to see as the lead actor.
Known for his comic timing and bringing realism in his characters, Dobriyal is another entrant in the list that surely doesn’t deserve to be called as underrated. He has done tremendous work in films like Omkara, Tanu Weds Manu, Hindi Medium and his performance will also be one of the key aspects to look forward in Kaalakaandi. Despite his brilliant acting skills, Dobriyal is still considered one of the most underrated actors of Bollywood.
